Yes I can see how you feel I too spent alot of money on this class and regret not taking the cpc class through the aapc instead i took throgh a distance learning and didnt get much bang for my buck I got a diploma I finished the class but I still had to spend for practice tests and you know study guides any way i just took my cpc exam and if i dont pass the test the second time because i dont feel i did very well this first one I will have to pay my employer back what they paid for me to take the test and the one yr membership as well.. I am determined to pass and this is my career goal so I will not give up. I will be the only certified coder in our billing dept of 4
Its not needed for me to keep my current job but later on down the road I know it will come in useful So keep your chin up and check all the doc offices in your area because I dont think all have to be certified to do actual coding work My job in billing is multitasking along with coding we are 4 people (who could use a 5th ) doing everything checking invoices for coding errors posting insurance payments helping patients with their bills sending claims to clearing house appeals insurance ar enter hosp charges for half of the docs.. and maybe because of all that software that is out there that does the coding for the doctor But the claims still need to be checked before they are sent All I am saying is that working in a doc office is more then coding and there might be an office out there looking for someone who is willing to learn and you are certified so that is a plus good luck to you and if you want to email me you can email@example.com
also insurance companies im told will hire coders for auditing and claims resolution specialist for UHC and Aetna I know for a fact they hire to work at home too so good luck to you Tracey
